Bands to keep a watch out for in the future: #7: Newsum Turn

Newsum TurnHaving already had the accolade of supporting such a wide range of bands as Snow Patrol, Editors, The Upper Room, Tom Vek and BellX1, Newsum Turn are possibly one of the brightest young bands I’ve ever featured in “Bands to keep a watch out for in the future”. The foursome from the East Midlands manage to make a suprisingly mature sound that would put many more established bands to shame.

I first came across them last November when they supported Thirteen Senses at the Luminaire in Kilburn, and managed to pull of an amazing sound accoustically when I saw them, and on their demo they sounds pretty awesome too. They’ve garnered support from other bands, with Delays fans in particular giving support on their message board

Sounding like a bigger Thirteen Senses, they manage to make epic music perfect for wintery walks down the beach, or just simply a cold wintery evening longing for that special someone. Comparing them to Keane or Coldplay would do them an injustice as many bands are often compared to them spitefully these days, however there is definately a hint of JJ72 (remember them?) or early Coldplay to them.

“Broken” is a ready formed radio hit right there on their myspace page, with its rocky, yet vulnerable sound doubtlessly appealing to large sections of the music buying population.

Currently in the studio, the band have promised some gigs in coming weeks, as they finish off their new album. However judging by their existing demos they should definately be ones to watch in the future. You heard it here first!
